#IndianSpiceLeaks: Former Lotus FM radio jock Ryan Naicker has come under the spotlight since his sudden exit from the radio station.
A series of damning allegations against Naicker have come to light following our investigation into his exit from Lotus FM.
Suren Packery of Algoa FM in East London lamented his experience of being swindled out of R15,000 by Ryan Naicker.
Packery said he first met Naicker while working at Algoa FM where his unfortunate friendship was forged. It was in 2009 that Naicker borrowed the R15000 on the pretence he needed the cash to buy a motorcycle, little did Packery know this was the last time he would ever see that amount of cash again.
“I gave up on ever getting my money back, he’s a con artist” says Suren Packery.
Naicker allegedly then left East London without paying back the money, Packery did not press on the matter to recover the money as Naicker dodged any attempt of being contacted.
Packery’s experience with Naicker was not the only one we discovered as there have been others who have had a similar situation with Naicker.
Family help Naicker pay off loan to Lotus FM staffer
At Lotus FM, the same pattern occurred where Naicker had then borrowed money from another staffer at the station and failed to honour his word to pay back the money on the agreed date.
The person attempted to continue pressing Naicker for the cash until he was forced to contact Naicker’s relative who then paid the amount on behalf of Naicker.
Twenty thousand rands later Another Lotus FM staffer introduced Naicker to his colleague was convinced to part with R20,000 of which is yet to be paid back after 4 years.
Vehicle endorsements for car dealerships
It was also disclosed that Naicker allegedly promised car dealerships endorsements on their vehicles in exchange for allowing him use of the brand new vehicles.
It is believed that a number of other individuals are taking Naicker on for fraud charges in similar incidents where he has taken money from them.
Naicker has failed to respond to our questions today regarding the allegations.
